Hallo everybody. it would be nice to get more comments from c4 picasso owners, especially from Nordic countries. I have ordered mine 2.0 diesel with 6 speed automatic and I can't wait to get it. on the other hand I am still afraid of french, because all my previous cars were German:) best regards.

I bought a C4 Picasso February 07. 1.6 HDI EGS VTR+.

What a brill car. A great multi-use vehicle.

Fuel consumption was averaging out at a constant 45.5 MPG, until the garage called it back in for three computer updates. When they returned it, the auto lights would only work turned to the off position, the auto wipers were the same, and the interior lights all came on when the door was shut. But most annoying; the MPG dropped down to 32. I am still trying to get it sorted out. All the garage says is they have not done anything to the consumption, so watch out if yours gets a recall!

I am looking to buy a C4 Picasso (5 seater not the GRAND) and I was wondering if could you fit a baby pram in the luggage compartment without folding the seats? A pram is the wagon you have your baby in when walking around in the streets :-)

The rear suspension is pneumatic and a rumbling would suggest something's wrong with it. In addition, the C4 Picasso has an exceptionally good ride for this class of car, making it even more likely you need to book a visit with your dealer!

I am thinking of buying a Grand C4 Picasso, but am not sure whether I should get one with the 1.6 HDi FAP 110 hp DIN motor or one with the more expensive 2.0 HDi FAP de 138 hp DIN. Is there really a advantage in having a slightly bigger motor?

A big plus on safety. A very big minus on gearbox (mechanical faults.

To the writer wondering about the engine size-I have a 1.6 diesel model & I am very impressed with its power output! I had a 1.8 petrol Vauxhall Zafira previously to compare it to. It was suggested to me that the only time a 2.0 diesel gives benefit is if you intend to tow anything & I would tend to agree. One problem I have had is with the drivers seat which gradually lowers as I drive along & I have to 'pump it up' every so often. As yet, this has not been resolved with the dealer.

I've had a C4 Grand Picasso for about 8 months. The EGS gearbox is jerky at high revs with a large lag in response if the throttle is floored.1.6HDI engine is superb with good performance. Main gripe is build quality, seats are cheap and nasty. Driver's seat has become uneven and uncomfortable when cornering as you tend to roll. Would never buy another Citroen, they look good but don't match the £20000 price tag in quality and reliability.
